Josh Barnett comments in an interview with MMAWeekly Radio.

When asked when he would end up in the UFC.

“It’s really unimportant. I think all the speculation is good for the people that enjoy the sport and they want to watch, and they want to be a part of that guessing game ‘what’s next,”

“You read a comic book and you’re always waiting for the next issue, but you’re always thinking about what happens if some of the X-Men end up fighting The Avengers, or if Iron Man left the team. That part is unavoidable.”

Barnett admits the constant asking of when he will join the UFC is beginning to get under his skin.

“For me, it’s actually starting to become annoying, but I understand the reason to ask it because who wouldn’t want to fight in the UFC?”

Barnett would however love to go over to the UFC and challenge the likes of Junior Dos Santos & Frank Mir.

“I’d love to go over there and beat everybody up and sit on top of that pile too. I believe I’m the best heavyweight out there in the world, so what better way to prove it than to punch everybody else in the face first.”
